Russian criminal tattoos

Chronicler of Russian crime

When Danzig Baldaev (pictured, sitting) was a boy his father, an eminent Buryat ethnographer, was denounced as an “enemy of the people” by the Soviet authorities. Danzig was later sent to work as a prison guard. His life’s work, the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia, has just been published by Steidl/Fuel. Photos by Sergei Vasiliev.
